Rhea-AI Summary
TransAlta Corporation (TransAlta) (TSX: TA) (NYSE: TAC) has entered into an automatic share purchase plan (ASPP) to facilitate repurchases of its common shares under the previously announced normal course issuer bid (NCIB). The company has purchased 6,989,000 common shares since January 1, 2023, and 871,100 common shares since the beginning of the current NCIB on May 31, 2023. The prevailing price for the common shares may not reflect their underlying value, leading the company to believe that the purchase of common shares under the NCIB is an attractive and appropriate use of available funds. The ASPP will allow for purchases of common shares to be made at times when the company would ordinarily not be permitted to make purchases, enhancing shareholder returns through appropriate capital allocation such as a share buyback and quarterly dividend underpinned by the company's strong free cash flow position.
